Today went extraordinarily well.
I played badminton with an old friend who is an occasional contributor to the comment sections of this blog, and enjoyed it immensely.
I also had a meeting with my advisor (the chair of my doctoral committee), which went much better than I could have hoped. I now transition from working on what I had been calling a pre-proposal to a proposal, which is one of the last stages in the Ph.D. program. So good for me!
I also have been impressed with John Scalzi‘s books, Old Man’s War and The Ghost Brigades. Amazon’s audiobooks seem to be handled through Audible, which I subscribed to years ago (before I came to UNL). I enjoyed the series, and I saw that even with Audible’s prices (which are cheaper than iTunes), I would save money subscribing a month at a time rather than buying audiobooks individually.
Lo and behold, I enter a username and password… and there pops up my old account, which I had from 2001 to 2004! Very cool. I can even redownload any of the old books, if I want. I remember listening to audible on a Rio PMP 300. Audible, my old friend.
But for now: on to The Last Colony!
